We’ve been working on adding a few new things to Google: to make connecting with people on the web more like connecting with them in the real world.
Sharing is a huge part of the web, a part that we think could be a lot simpler. Thats why weve been working on adding a few new things to Google: to make connecting with people on the web more like connecting with them in the real world. We hope you like what weve cooked up so far. And stay tuned, because theres more to come.
You share different things with different people. But sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldnt be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself, just like real life.
Remember when your Grandpa used to cut articles out of the paper and send them to you? That was nice. Thats kind of what Sparks does: looks for videos and articles it thinks youll like, so when youre free, theres always something to watch, read, and share. Grandpa would approve.Bumping into friends while youre out and about is one of the best parts of going out and about. With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let buddies know youre hanging out and see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until we perfect teleportation, its the next best thing.
Taking photos is fun. Sharing photos is fun. Getting photos off your phone and on to the web is pretty much the opposite of fun. Thats why we created Instant Upload: so that from now on, your photos upload themselves. You dont even have to say cheese.
Texting is great, but not when youre trying to get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle takes care of it by turning all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page long before thumbs get sore.
